Re: When Converting Scratch to GP it doesn't Work?

but you can't say to GP it should whait with the refresh until the custom block is finished.
Not looked at code but couldn't you just add a wait block inside the custom block or after calling it from a main script?

Re: Is it allowed to submit a modified version of GP in this forum?

My view on this.

The GP project is still underdevelopment - it is not a finished product by any means so I would not publish an amended version at this time.

We don't need https://xkcd.com/927/

Re: Advertising for GP

I've thought about this but I'm not sure GP is quite ready for an influx of young scratchers quite yet

[example]Reading files one byte at a time

Just putting this here for anyone wanting to use the new filestream blocks to read large files

There is no end-of-file boolean available but if the byte read has a nil value then we can assume that we've read the whole file

Re: False and True

The boolean switches have been inherited from Snap but due to the fact that colours in GP are very muted compared to Snap/Scratch they do look very indistinct I personally would like to keep to "standard" black arrow dropdown with the words true/false I was never a fan of them when they were introdu...

Christmas/Holidays are over - where's the new version!!

:-) There's been a lot of suggestions made in past 6 months - obviously a lot by me :) When are the changes a coming? :) In all seriousness, GP has got some show-stopping bugs (certainly on Windows) that makes it unsuitable to actually use for real in a classroom without a lot of TLC And the GUI int...
